English for University - preparing for the future

Get prepared for your future: book a language course in London focused on English for University and improve your study skills! If you want to graduate from an English University, our University Foundation Programme is the perfect starting point for you!

Our University Foundation Programme is a course dedicated to English and study skills for University.

It provides a comprehensive introduction to academic study in English; preparing you for every aspect of university life.

The course includes academic English language tuition (focused on English for University), IELTS exam preparation, and study skills development, ensuring the best possible start for entry to your degree course.


Our IELTS Exam Preparation course focuses on the four components of the exam – listening, reading, writing and speaking. The course will expand your grammatical skills and develop your academic English language skills and vocabulary. The course will also improve your exam technique by including regular examination practice to get you used to working under examination conditions.

Our academic English language tuition provides you with the skills required to perform in an English-speaking academic context. We will prepare you for your degree-level study by ensuring you are familiar with the academic environment and conventions of the British Higher Education system. You will also have the opportunity to listen to academic lectures, deliver oral presentations, read academic texts, plan and produce academic essays and participate in seminars and debates.



Throughout our University Foundation Programme, you will benefit from small class sizes, one-to-one tutorials and dedicated pastoral support from a committed team of staff.

We will continuously monitor your academic progress, and give you regular one-to-one tutorials to discuss and advise you on how to improve further.
